What an opportunity for the locals? Get those up to middle age and on the dole with a driving licence, expediate their training and tests. I'm sure fellow locals can manage delays or shortages of certain items on supermarket shelves.

Recruit/promote from within is the long term solution; outsiders come and go usually with hidden costs eg welfare/education/housing/nhs costs.

Disability benefit is the one to get on. I don't know its proper name.

They don't seem to go short of anything and they're not classed as unemployed.
Let someone else do the work seems to be the way to go today.

Get the sponging parasites that can work but refuse to do so to take a job, any job. Whether it be in agriculture, food processing, hospitality, driving, you name it. Why should we tolerate these scavengers, one in particular on here that sits all day posting conspiracy theories about Covid? Stop their dole money, they will be out looking for a job tomorrow.

Other than lorry drivers,the other labour shortages seem in areas like hospitality,food preparation,meat packing etc. A lot of these are covid 'hotspots' Given that doctors don't want face to face contact isn't it asking a bit to push people into these minimum paid jobs while covid rates are high?
There is certainly a moral argument,most people don't want to do it and i can't blame them.

What's gone wrong is the system for training HGV drivers, due to covid restrictions.

They've got driver shortages in Europe as well.

One way out would be to grant temporary work visas for Europeans.

The government and civil servants caught asleep as usual.

If it's more than dole money, you should be made to take it.

The potential drivers are there or right and willing.
It's simply a matter of training them.

But the British aren't very good at doing stuff like that.

Government need to just re-do those adverts. Y'know the ballerina with "her next job is in cyber". Instead, "her next job is 70 hours a week, 5 night sleeping away from home and pissing in a layby".

A shortage of drivers isn't a complete absence of them.

takes 10 years to train people up to drive the biggest/complicated rigs,
hence you,ll only get people in to years of so called entry level driving [ low wages ] by offering them big bucks,then those already qualified to operate the bigger rigs will want more money to drive them,

The amusing this now is that if we did open our borders to European truckers/care workers etc we'd be absolutely flooded. They liked it here before, but suddenly wages have shot up 40%. We'd be better re-writing road signs in Polish as there'd likely be more Poles than Brits on our roads.

The covid mess over the last eighteen months and even now is wrecking the country.

People keep calling for lockdowns and restrictions, and when they happen this is the result.

Nothing gets done.

another big hit for hgv .low wage jobs is the ending of IR 35,people were using [ abusing ] the tax system to make it worth their while to subsidise low wage jobs for both employers and employees

There's a bottleneck in the training of HGV drivers due to the covid restrictions.

It's the same all over the country.
Nobody is doing anything.

The civil servants are sitting at home in their gardens instead of working.

Hgv drivers are doing a difficult and important job , pay should reflect that
Of course if someone wants a cushy job sitting in an office in maybe the civil service or in cyber , whatever that is , then pay should in such cases be subjected to the same realities . That’s the reality of the new market place

It could possibly be ten years in a minute number of cases, but we are talking about general hgv drivers and ten years sounded preposterous to me. The worrying thing is that people question nothing, cos it's experts on TV.

the point is its low paid work at entry level ,if they raise entry level wages all those further up the scale will want thier wages increasing,rightly so,when everyone in the supply chain demands better pay/better working conditions and rightly so, so some buinesses will say nah thanks
amazing all these tory,s/right wingers demanding business pay better wages better T,s n C,S same right winger saying minimum wage would cripple uk plc 20 yrs ago LaughLaugh
